Hi all, this seems a lovely friendly forum so I thought I'd post for the first time.
I am due to start week 5 tomorrow. I've been doing it on the treadmill in the gym as my joints don't hold up well to pounding the pavement. I've not listened to the podcasts as I'm a bit worried about overbalancing on the treadmill so felt having things in my ears would make me feel a bit unsteady (well a lot unsteady - I already feel a bit unsteady ha!). But I'm feeling very daunted by week 5 and the dreaded r3 at the end of the week. So I thought I'd give the podcast a go tomorrow morning for w5/r1. The only thing is I couldn't remember the routine for week 4 so did my own invention of run four minutes walk three - both repeated three times.
What I wanted to ask is do you think that's an ok preparation for week 5? And also what else have I missed by not listening to the podcasts?
Opinions greatly appreciated!
